Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is caramel, sorghum, lozenges. Taste is caramel with some thin metallic notes that finishes with bitterish herbal lozenges. Not too bad for an Amber Ale.

12 ounce bottle .. . i have an aversion to ambers, but this was solid .. . malty sweetness is on point, very little hop bitterness .. mouth is mild but not scared .. a pretty boring beer but a solid amber .. . . The hero is commonly the simplest and obscurest of men.

12oz bottle on my daughters patio on 21st May 2016, into a Corsendonk tulip glass. Dark mahogany body, off-white wisp and collar. Malty blend with semi-sweet molasses ruling the nose and taste. Decent, but a bit ’one dimensional’.

This was really good, not to strong. Color was great, taste was smooth. Definitely can’t wait to try more.

cheap (6009) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2015
From a bottle, very dark for an amber. First taste is rather malty fer sure. So, mendocino it is! Metallic aroma. Probably shouldah cooled it more. Yes, lots of flavor. Alky is apparent. Finish leaves you wishing for more carbonation.
